Fulham confirmed yet another late signing tonight with Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa becoming their 12th signing this summer.
Anguissa has joined for an undisclosed fee on a five-year deal.
‘I hope to bring my qualities to this new project’
On signing for Fulham Anguissa said,
“I am delighted to have signed for Fulham today. This is a new chapter in my career and one I’m really looking forward to.
“I hope to bring my qualities to this new project. I like a challenge and I will ensure that I give my very best to my team, the Club, and the supporters.”
Tony Khan has also praised Anguissa.
“I’m thrilled to announce that Fulham Football Club has signed André Zambo Anguissa. André’s tremendous data profile, his glowing scouting reports, and his sterling reputation confirm his world class talent.
“Throughout this summer, we’ve pursued elite players on whom we believed we could rely to deliver the quality required to challenge the great competition we’ll face in the Premier League, and thus, Andre has been one of our top targets.
“We are very excited that he’s joining the Club! Come on Fulham!”
Fulham enjoyed a very impressive 2017/18 Championship campaign. They finished 3rd in the Championship and scored a superb 79 goals in 46 league games. Only league winners Wolves managed more.
As a result of finishing 3rd Fulham earned themselves a playoff spot. They would beat Derby County 2-1 over two legs of the semi-final and they would go on to beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the final.
Now that Fulham have returned to the top flight of English football for the first time in four years, they needed to improve upon their squad in order to survive the upcoming season and signing Zambo Anguissa has gone some way to doing that.
He will join the likes of Jean Michael Seri, Andre Schurrle, Alfie Mawson, Fabricio, Maxime Le Marchand, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Vietto and Joe Bryan who have already made the switch to Fulham this summer.
